Prevention and Control of Healthcare-associated Infections (PH 36)

Creator:

National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)

Subject Keywords: To reduce the risk of harm from healthcare-associated infections for patients, staff and visitors
Type: Guideline
Region: United Kingdom
Description:

NICE, in partnership with the Health Protection Agency (HPA), has produced this quality improvement guide for board members working in (or with) hospitals. The aim is twofold: to reduce the risk of harm from healthcare-associated infections for patients, staff and visitors; and to reduce the costs associated with preventable infection.

The guide consists of 11 quality improvement statements which provide clear markers of excellence in infection prevention and control at a management or organisational level. Each statement is supported by examples of the type of evidence that could be used to prove the organisation has achieved excellence, and examples of what this would mean in practice on a day-to-day basis.   

The guide was developed using a pilot process.
